    Default Fatal error occurred - BT3 data not found

    I have downloaded Backtrack 3 iso and burned the iso file to a CD
    When i try to boot backtrack from CD , the screen hangs @

    looking for data directory
    please wait
    Fatal error occurred - BT3 data not found
    You may be using an unsupported boot device (eg SCSI or old PCMCIA)
    Workaround: copy the directory BT3 from your boot device from your boot device to an IDE/SATA disk eg. to mnt/hda1/BT3
    or c:/BT3 , then try to boot again

    1- I made sure that the iso file is not courrupted by md5 checking .
    2-I reburned the iso file on a new CD @ lower speed 16x and
    3- I have BT 4 live CD and it boots normally so there is no issue of support .
    4- I want to boot backtrack 3 from the live CD ( no installation)

    I need to understand the cause of such fatal error plz.

    thanks in advance
